Bernie Sanders on Palestine, Israel and the Middle East 03-10-1988

Someone stated tonight that Bernie just now came out in favour of Palestinian rights, it took me ten seconds to find out that's not true:

1. Just another despicable lie/distortions about Bernie.


It's pathetic.

3. The dog whistles are more frequent now, it's to be expected.

Another one claims he's anti-Israel, they need to compare notes, either he hates Israel or he hates Palestine.

2. he's fringe; Americans broadly stand with Israel

 



I will keep posting the graphic until the far-left drops the anti-Israel cause.

4. Didn't watch the video, did you? He stands with Israel.

You know that your graphic is a red herring and doesn't prove your claims about him, right?

7. I think this guy is paid shill

He has trotted that image in 3 separate threads. You can never tell these days with paid trolls. I know the IDF employs online trolls.

8. He has been smearing Bernie on all issues for months.

He has some interesting talking points, like from a right wing perspective.

19. your "real world" grossproffit, is not my "real world"

 

your username and avatar strongly suggest your world is the galaxy of the 1%. that in and of itself is a cloister of privilege of the few which is anything but the "real world",

23. How is a poll relevant to Bernie's position on Palestine?

The poster who keeps spamming the board with it is using it to "prove" Bernie doesn't support Israel, so you agree with him?

11. You are correct...

...and it has cost him politically during his time in office. Which is just one of many reasons I have always respected him. He stands up for what is fair for all not just what is popular to some.

As much as I disliked his answer to the question of being able to sue gun manufacturers for what their product produces (which would undoubtedly save lives) I could/can not disagree with it.

9. This is manna from heaven for more than just Clinton supporters.

He is not anti-Israel, he is not anti-Semitic. And, he is not a "self-loathing Jew." His YUGE "mistake" is even mentioning Palestinians. I may not fully agree with some of his statements, but overall, his position is equitable and doesn't leave Israel out in the cold, as some are trying to make it sound.

10. Exactly! He's the Goldilocks candidate.

They're trying to smear him from both sides of the issue even though he's tried to be fair and equitable.

He's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

Thanks, Jefferson23!

22. You're welcome, some people have issues with Bernie that have nothing to do with his politics.

They are outing themselves more and more often lately.
